South Kansas Symphony

The South Kansas Symphony and the Southwestern Youth Chamber Players are non-profit groups funded by Southwestern College and by the generosity of individual and corporate sponsors. Contributions also come from alumni, friends, and ticket sales. 

SKS LogoThe South Kansas Symphony strives to provide musical memories for our audience with a variety of music for all ages. Talented musicians drawn from the collegiate and public communities enrich the ensemble. In addition, we hope the new acoustically-crafted Richardson Performing Arts Center and Callison Stage transport your listening experience to another level.

The Southwestern Youth Chamber Players (formerly the Southwestern College Youth Symphony) is a unique program that serves dual purposes: (a) It develops chamber music skills in students, fostering independence, confidence, and musicality; and (b) it provides a lab experience for Southwestern students in which teaching and secondary instrument skills can be practiced.

2020-2021 Season Postponed for SKS & SYCP

We regret to announce that both the South Kansas Symphony and the Southwestern Youth Chamber Players will be postponing their 2020-2021 season until at least January due to COVID-19. Watch for announcements about when rehearsals and performances will resume. Stay well!
